Report 13: Eastern Guinea


FRENCH GUINEA (GUINEA)  In April 1938 Denise Savineau found herself in 'French Guinea' as the area was called by Europeans in the colonial era. Here she set about informing herself about the customs and lifestyles of the Manons, the Guerzes, the Tomas, the Kissis, and the Madinkas from Kankan. As in Report 9, her interest here lies more with learning about the African people of the area, rather than with the implementation and impact of French colonial rule in the region.
